How common are workplace injuries in the US?
The Bureau of Labor Statistics(BLS) states that there were around 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries or illnesses during the latest reporting year. While most work injuries are relatively minor, many are severe and lead to long-lasting consequences and disabilities for victims.
There are many high-risk industries in California. When we look at the industries with the most fatalities per 100,000 workers, we see many risky jobs:
- Logging workers
- Aircraft pilots
- Truck drivers
- Construction workers
- Taxi drivers
- Ground maintenance and tree trimmers
- Construction forepersons
- Building painters
- Police officers
However, any worker has a chance of getting injured. For example, all workers run the risk of slip and fall injuries. Some industries have workers at higher risk of repetitive stress injuries.
Some of the most common injuries our Corona workplace injuries attorneys see on a regular basis include:
- Broken or Dislocated Bones
- Severe lacerations or amputations
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
When looking at long-term exposure or repetitive motion injuries, we commonly see:
- Hearing and vision loss
- Respiratory diseases
- Chronic pain
- Carpal tunnel
- And other repetitive motion injuries
These injuries are often caused by loud noises, chemicals, hazardous materials, etc.
How can I get the compensation I deserve?
Employers have a duty to ensure the safety of their workers. This includes providing the training and equipment necessary for each worker to do their jobs appropriately.
In many cases, we see that workplace injuries are the fault of a third-party. This could include third-party contractors, defective products, and more. In these cases, injured workers could be entitled to compensation beyond what is being offered by workers’ comp insurance.
Nobody should ever have to worry about whether or not they will be covered if an injury happens in the workplace. Work injuries should be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. At JML Law, we believe in standing up for injured employees who are struggling to get the compensation they deserve. We want to make sure you have the following:
- Coverage for your medical expenses
- Recovery of lost wages if you cannot work
- Coverage of physical therapy if necessary
- Pain and suffering damages
- Loss of enjoyment of life damages
If your employer was grossly negligent or you were injured due to a third party, we will seek possible punitive damages against the negligent party. If you need a Corona workplace injuries lawyer, you can contact us by clicking here or calling us at 818-610-8800 for a free consultation today.
